Exquisite ThreadsThis year they will also feature an exhibition about the history of the city’s fashion and textiles industry at the Stonnington History Centre in Malvern, one of Melbourne’s hidden archival gems.

The centre is not a museum, but they do have as well as a stunning array of photographs and documents, textiles and objects that have come to them over the years by default and they will put them on display.

Australian-ImagesThese play well into the stories surrounding Australia’s evolution as a society.
